Being a business theatre producer has allowed Brian the opportunity to meet and work with some very fascinating people from a variety of backgrounds which, in turn, has helped shape his knowledge and his opinions. His blog will not always be political, it will be about a lifetime of subjects, and nothing is off limits. “Few people have original thoughts, we are shaped by the people we know and meet” he says.

Retire John Dingell

Talk about a career politician, John Dingell is epitome of the career politician. First elected at age 29 because his father passed away while serving in congress, Dingell has been relatively unchallenged since the mid 60s. Time to retire Dingell.

It is time for change, Dingell misrepresents the 15th Michigan Congressional District and has been MIA since 1955. He is so well entrenched in Congress that he is the longest serving (questionable at best) representative in Congress. Time to retire Dingell.

He is an old style politician. His advertising shows it and his lack of representation of the people is tragic. He only shows up when there is an election to ask for voters money to support his lifestyle. Time to retire Dingell.

One of his claims is that he helped write the "Do not call" legislation, but he exempted political calls and banks. I should probably thank him because political phone calls is why I cancelled my home land line. Take that Ma Bell! Time to retire Dingell.

In 1985, Dingell, age 59, reached his 30 year anniversary representing Southeast Michigan in the US House of Representatives. He is currently in his 27th term (54th year) of Congress at age 84. Time to retire Dingell.

Dingell has sponsored such notable legislation as Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975, the Energy Tax Act of 1978, Trading Sanctions Act of 1984, to name a few. Some good, mostly expensive to tax payers. You can't be in congress for over 50 years without being involved in some good and bad legislation. Time to retire Dingell.

As Chairman of the Committee on Energy and Commerce he was responsible for establishing one of the most wasteful agencies in government. He also voted against the Equal Rights Amendment, giving equal pay to women back in 1972. Take that ladies. Time to retire Dingell.

Thank you for your service but it is time to retire. It is not like it will hurt his income level. As the longest living member of Congress he will receive 93% plus of his salary for life.

The people of Michigan’s 15th District deserve a Representative who has their issues at heart, not the issues of D.C., special interests or the needs of career politicians. I intend to represent the people. This approach scares the D.C. elite, but it is not radical. This is what our founders intended.

Dr. Rob Steele is that candidate. Vote for Dr. Rob Steele on November 2, 2010 and give John Dingell some needed rest.

That is my stand.
